Power Unlimited
Het beste basketbalspel voor de SNES en de Mega Drive is draagbaar geworden met de Game Gear versie. Het is vrijwel gelijk aan de Mega Drive versie, heeft een helder beeld en laat zich bijna niet wegleggen zo verslavend is het.
GamePro (US)
This cart is a noble attempt to squeeze the features and spirit of the arcade hit into a handheld, but much is lost in the translation.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (EGM)
Although the Game Gear has some limitations, this game does come off fairly well from a stand point of an arcade translation. Compared to other GG games, the graphics are decent and the game plays very well. It's too bad that most of the awesome jams had to be taken out. The play-by-play announcing had to be omitted because of memory problems. Any GG owner who loves basketball will love this game.
